new speaker day - Mesa Black Shadow

Post by Powdered Toast Man » Thu Jan 07, 2021 1:47 pm

Just caught this lightly used on a local deal. I've had my eye out for a pair for a long time. Why? These are the same speakers Keith Richards uses in his Twins. So I got one and I dropped it into my 57 Twin.

It sounds great in this amp! Full, chimey, lots of headroom. Had to turn the treble down a bit after installing it. I figure I'll try it out for a while and if I don't end up liking it I can always resell it.

These are great speakers. They usually pack a ton of tight low end, but I'm used to hearing them in closed back cabs. I'd be interested to hear them in an open back enclosure. Enjoy your find!
